Manchester Art Gallery

Weddings and civil ceremonies

Manchester Art Gallery is a beautiful and unforgettable setting for weddings and civil ceremonies, and the galleries and artworks provide a backdrop for photographs which is second to none.

Ceremonies are held amongst the paintings in Gallery 10, which provides an exclusive setting for you and your guests. After the ceremony, your wedding party can celebrate with drinks in the romantic Pre-Raphaelite Galleries, followed by dinner and dancing in the glass Atrium or the Gallery Restaurant.

Our event managers will guide you through the planning process, and our caterers will work with you to ensure that you and your guests have a truly memorable and distinctive wedding experience.

All couples getting married at our gallery receive a years complimentary Manchester Art Gallery Friends membership.

What our newlyweds say

The staff we liaised with were always extremely helpful and quick to respond to the various follow up queries we had once we had made our decision to proceed with the Gallery as a wedding venue. We also felt continually reassured by the prompt and helpful answers we received to all our more detailed questions and requests. Overall a stunning venue supported by a fantastic staff team. The gallery exceeded our expectations. The events staff were very helpful right from our first meeting to our wedding day.

The gallery helped to make our wedding a truly memorable day. We have had some amazing feedback from our guests about both how fabulous the wedding venue was and how good the catering was. We would have no hesitation in recommending the gallery for an event.
